    The comments on that post are kind of amazing.

    My favourite alignment detail of the iPhone 6 is the camera that sticks out and misaligns the whole device when you place it on any flat surface.

      But at least there's an element of honesty in the how Apple handles the protruding lens. It's a simple metal ring. To Jony Ive, it's "a really very pragmatic optimisation."

      Compare the metal ring to how Samsung handles the same problem- btw, the lens also protrudes on the new Galaxy (as it does on the new HTC and LG). To Samsung, it's embellished into a feature. The question is will it still remain a feature to Samsung when Apple manages to reduce the size of the camera module and goes back to flushed lens.

    Wow, I didn't even realise what a blatant rip-off Samsung's made, even though I have an iPhone 6 Plus.

    It's all these little details that make the product that good though. Most people might not even notice why it looks so good, or pay a single thought to how the hardware is laid out. But nobody misses the overall effect.

    I like the parallel to furniture he makes in the article. I'm like that; I spend the extra hour(s) to paint the bottom of the cabinet. Never thought of it before, actually.

    Really great article. It's those little things that really make the experience worthwhile.
